This essential book fills a serious gap in the field by synthesizing modern Italian history and placing it in a fully European context. Emphasizing globalization, Italy traces the country's transformation from a land of emigration to one of immigration and its growing cultural importance. Including coverage of the April 2008 elections, this updated edition offers expanded examinations of contemporary Italy's economic, social, and cultural development, a deepened discussion on immigration, and four new biographical sketches. Author Spencer M. Di Scala discusses the role of women, gives ample attention to the Italian South, and provides a picture of how ordinary Italians live. Cast in a clear and lively style that will appeal to readers, this comprehensive account is an indispensable addition to the field.

About the Author:

Spencer M. Di Scala is Professor of History and History Graduate Program Director at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. He is the author of numerous scholarly books and articles on Italian and European history, politics, and culture; serves on the editorial boards of scholarly journals; and won the UCEA's 2007 National Award for excellence in teaching.

Review:

“This is simply the best history of modern Italy. Students regularly praise it in my course evaluations. Spencer Di Scala's prose is crisp, his scope comprehensive, his analysis lucid, and his judgment wise. The book's special strengths are political, social, and cultural history, international context, and a rich bibliographical essay for further studies. A masterful work by a master historian and teacher.”
—John Alcorn, Trinity College

“Spencer Di Scala’s book is a comprehensive, balanced, and accessible survey of three centuries of Italian history, placed in a larger European context. With helpful maps, pithy biographies and an unmatched bibliographical essay, it is perhaps the best introductory text for students and stimulating for scholars as well. From the Enlightenment to the phenomenon that is Silvio Berlusconi, updated to address Italy’s most pressing contemporary problems and paradoxes, it is an indispensable work.”
—Stanislao G. Pugliese, Hofstra University

“Spencer Di Scala's Italy: From Revolution to Republic, 1700 to the Present improves with every edition, with more portaits of representative Italians and by extending its scope well-into the twenty-first century. Well organized and elegantly written, it serves as an ideal introduction to the serious study of modern Italy.”
—Roy Palmer Domenico, University of Scranton
